MURDER BODYCAM FOOTAGE: NYPD accuses Tyre Nichols of resisting arrest in Memphis

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that NYPD accuses Tyre Nichols of resisting arrest in Memphis.

On Thursday, Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy announced that his office has brought charges against the five officers involved in the death of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols: second-degree murder, acting in concert of aggravated assault, two aggravated kidnapping charges, two official misconduct charges, and official oppression. “While each of the five individuals played a different role in the incident in question, the actions of all of them resulted in the death of Tyre Nichols.”

“We want justice for Tyre Nichols,” Mulroy added. “If there’s any silver lining to be drawn from this very dark cloud, it’s to start a conversation about police reform.”

“He was a human piƱata for those police officers,” a lawyer for Nichols’ family, Antonio Romanucci, said Monday after the family watched video of their son’s attack by the police officers. “Not only was it violent, it was savage,” he said, as Nichol’s mother started crying and repeated “Oh my God.” Nichols’ mom apparently couldn’t bear to watch more than a minute of the three-minute attack.

The District Attorney’s office has emphasized its commitment to due process. “We're going to go by the facts and the law,” Mulroy told ABC News. The newly-formed Judicial Review Unit—staffed with prosecutors who don’t regularly work with the Memphis Police Department—recommend the charges.

This is how you do it. You give the officers due process. But you don’t serve as their defense attorney. Better still, how you do it is by weeding out abusive cops before they kill. But it’s still notable that officials in a red state (albeit in a purplish city) appear more committed to accountability for police officers than they are in a deep blue city in a blue state, like New York City.

In New York, it took five years for Eric Garner’s killer, Officer Daniel Pantaleo, to lose his job after placing him in a chokehold, causing Garner to desperately plead, “I can’t breathe,” before losing consciousness and dying.

After police in 2006 fired 50 bullets, killing Sean Bell, the NYPD’s commissioner put five officers on paid leave—stripped of their weapons, but keeping their jobs. At the time, The New York Times described this as “forceful” discipline.

When NYPD officers shot dead Saheed Vassall in 2015, after he pointed what they thought was a gun that turned out to be a metal pipe, the attorney general’s office found the NYPD officers who shot Mr. Vassell were legally justified in their actions since “the use of deadly physical force is necessary to defend the police officer or peace officer or another person from what the officer reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of deadly physical force.”

NYPD makes a targeted arrest against one of the lead marchers with a microphone at the Justice for Tyre Nichols protest, NYC.
